“I’m so content being a man that I would miss the clanging of my balls.”
— William Shatner
Apparently famous people say stuff like that.
I just finished reading The Encyclopedia Shatnerica, a hilarious and revealing compilation of all things William Shatner. The last word in Shatnerology, you can learn all about the crappy B-movies and other wacky stuff Shat did after the Star Trek TV series, as well as why pretty well all of his co-stars hated him (not just George Takei). The book isn’t always cruel; it cuts out the snark when talking about Shatner’s third wife (who tragically drowned in their pool) and praises his award-winning work on Boston Legal as the batty Denny Crane.
I’ve never met William Shatner but he seems like a fascinating guy, someone with a whole bunch of stories to tell. I’m not likely to ever get a chance to talk to him, but this book is the next best thing.
